You know how I'm always like "I hate MySpace" and "MySpace is so lame" and "oh my god I love MySpace" and things like that?
Okay, I actually had a point with the whole MySpace thing, but I'm feeling scattered right now, and I forget what the point was.
When I was a kid, I used to enter contests all the time (like "Enter to Win a Trip to Hollywood, CA to see a Taping of Growing Pains!" and "Win a Shirt Signed by ALF!" and other such inane contests, from the backs of magazines like Teen Beat and Alf Comics).
Well, my friend Jessica is obsessed with Harry Potter and she just entered a contest to meet the cast of Harry Potter in London and since she knows I am just as obsessed with London as she is obsessed with Harry Potter (she's obsessed with London too) she agreed to take me if she wins. So instead of entering the contest myself and splitting the vote, I'm throwing my weight behind Jessica's ticket and that's my New Thing for today. I am totally geeking out and asking you to vote for Jessica on the Harry Potter website so that we can win and go to London.
Right now Jessica has 6 votes (thanks to my AWESOME MySpace friends who have already voted) (MySpace is AWESOME). But the person who's winning--probably some idiot twelve-year-old or something like that--has, like, 4000 votes. SO WE NEED YOUR HELP.
If you feel like doing a New Thing today and registering on the Harry Potter website (it takes, like, two minutes and it's kind of annoying) then would you mind voting for Jessica so that she'll win and take me to London? I will love you forever.
The name you need to type in when you vote is "JessicaS3506".
Vote for JessicaS3506 is the new Vote for Pedro.
Love you forever!
P.S. I cannot believe I even posted this as a blog entry.
P.P.S. But I really want to go to London.
P.P.P.S. "Cara" is the fake girl I made up in a comment thread months ago. I felt like this blog entry would be less geeky if I addressed it to her instead of my regular blog readers, but maybe that makes it even MORE geeky. I dunno.
P.P.P.P.S. I'm not even really a Harry Potter fan. I mean, I've seen the movies, and I liked them and all, but I've never read any of the books.
P.P.P.P.P.S. I don't know if I intented this (on a subconcious level) while I was writing this post, but the post feels like it's spam. You know what I mean?
P.P.P.P.P.P.S. Sorry for spamming you.
P.P.P.P.P.P.P.S. I think the reason I type so many typos in general is that I type too fast. I also have a crappy keyboard, which I think deserves some of the blame. Some of the keys occasionally stick. (Don't ever buy a Toshiba laptop.)
